I haven’t been able to write lately.
I don’t mean that someone has physically been holding me in a headlock and wrestling me away from any available writing instruments– but rather that, mentally, I’ve been in a bit of a funk. When you get too self-conscious about something, it’s only a matter of time before your creativity runs dry. However, it’s difficult to completely not care what anyone else thinks about you; in my experience, it’s downright impossible!
Enter: these blondies. They’re far from being the most attractive thing I’ve ever made. They aren’t going to win Miss America anytime soon– Miss Congeniality, maybe, but these blondies know that they aren’t “leading lady” material. They’re a little under-baked, a little quirky, a little off-kilter. They have their good points, though: the buttery, dense structure, the chewy texture, and the bright-flavored strawberries.
They aren’t perfect, but they’re pretty tasty just the same.
After all, I’m sure even Scarlett Johansson has a pimple somewhere.
